RCAF leads Canadian Armed Forces space initiatives
Space is an important and growing element of the global security environment, and space-based capabilities are crucial to the day-to-day activities of all Canadians.
The Canadian Armed Forces’ space-related activities are an essential component of the defence of Canada and North America, and provide support to operations worldwide. The CAF employs space-based capabilities for a range of activities including all-domain awareness, weather information, surveillance, intelligence gathering and reconnaissance, search and rescue, navigation, and global communications.
